Nine Inch Nails

Nine Inch Nails has revealed the tracklist for Year Zero on the Web site yearzero.nin.com, and it looks like the new CD will have 16 tracks. The album is due in stores on April 17, and the first single, “Survivalism," will arrive at radio on February 27 with an add date of March 6. Reportedly Year Zero will be the first of two concept albums, and the second one will be released probably in 2008.

After collaborating for a performance at the Grammy Awards, John Legend and Corinne Bailey Rae will join forces for a month-long spring tour of North America. The trek will begin on April 3 in Irvine, CA and will hit theaters and a handful of outdoor venues through May 4 in Atlanta.

Metallica has posted a studio update on their Web site, saying that pre-production for their next album is almost finished and they will begin recording on March 12. "We're pretty f**kin' psyched about it and pretty f**kin' psyched to be sharing this experience with [producer] Rick [Rubin]," writes the band. They also hinted at their plans to play some of Europe's summer festivals, and maybe a handful of other shows too. "We're planning to share the summer love with our friends in some different countries we didn't get to last year... So keep your eyes open for more details in the next few," they wrote. "The plan right now is to head out in late June and hang out for a couple/three weeks. We might even do a certain festival that we've played 19 times in July that starts with a 'W,' maybe hit a certain band member's home turf."

The Shins have extended their North American tour with a number of dates in March. The latest shows begin in Dallas on March 5 and wind up in Toronto on March 17.

Critical favorites The Arcade Fire have announced a North American tour in support of their upcoming album, Neon Bible. The trek begins on April 26 in San Diego, followed by a stop at the Coachella Festival on April 28. Along the way, the Canadian band will play three nights in New York City, two nights in Montreal, two nights in Toronto, a three night stand in Chicago and two shows in Berkeley, CA. The Arcade Fire begins a week's worth of tiny shows in New York tonight, and will be overseas in March and April.

Rufus Wainwright is reportedly eyeing a May release for his next album, Release the Stars. The 12-song set was executive produced by Pet Shop Boys leader Neil Tennant and boasts guest appearances by Folk legend Richard Thompson, Joan Wasser and actress Sian Phillips, according to Billboard.com

The Flaming Lips have announced a handful of tour dates in April, beginning in Athens, GA on April 11 and wrapping up on April 19 in Norfolk, VA. The Lips also won a pair of Grammys on Sunday night for Best Rock Instrumental Performance and Best Engineered Non-Classical Album.

Up-and-coming Scottish band The View has cancelled their March tour of the States due to "visa and immigration issues." The band plans to reschedule the trek, which was to include a stop at SXSW, as soon as possible. Their debut album, Hats Off To The Buskers, has also had its U.S. release date pushed to May 8.
